OK, so I have heard that replacing the high gain screen in an RPTV will yield fantastic benefits...but have yet to hear any first-hand reports. I contacted Da-Lite about their offerings. Its gonna be expensive, so this isn't something I want to just jump into. The only "report" I have is from Michael TLV, who calibrated a Toshiba set with one of these replacement screens. Michael, if you're listening...I was a bit confused by your report. On the one hand, you complained of "milky blacks", due to the colour of the screen itself, as well as horrendous "internal reflections". On the other though, you compare the image quality to that of a high-end FPTV - yet your complaints would seem to dispute this. Could you clarify? Incidentally, I have absolute 100% control over ambient lighting, so that is not an issue. Would replacing my set's (Tosh 56H80) screen with a screen from Da-Lite improve things - to the point of justifying the high price of admission?? Also, owing to the fact the replacement screen will be of much lower gain - how will this affect how hard I have to drive my set? I don't know the exact numbers, but lets just assume the screen currently in my set is a 2.5 gain screen - the replacement screen I'm looking at is more like 1. So am I gonna have to drive my set a lot harder - ie. push the Contrast or Brightness way up to get the same light output?? Or am I not understanding the concept of screen gain at all? I don't know if its worth it if I have to push my Contrast up to 70. ____ Jeff ------------------ "You're a walking stick! It's funny! Now GO!"
